    I usually separate Galician from Spanish, just like Basques and Catalans.

      Include Andalusian, Canary Islander, Cantabrian, Castilian, Extremaduran, and Leonese as parts of his Spanish ancestry, and distant Indigenous as part of his Argentinian ancestry. Also, add distant Portugese as well. I don’t see Aragonese, Catalan and Valencian ancestry so far.

      Here’s one example of his Indigenous ancestor:

      which makes 0 sense from a genetical standpoint, Basques are granted, they ARE separate ethnicity from Iberians or Celts from Iberia, but Galicians and Catalans? Huh? Catalans aren’t a separate ethnicity, they’re Iberians, probably the purest Iberians in Spain at this point, if you separate Catalans you might as well separate every Spanish ethnicity and forget the “Spanish” label altogether.
      On what basis do you separate them from “Spanish”, how are Galicians not to be lumped within the “Spanish” cluster but somehow Cantabrians, who are also Celts (Assuming that’s the basis you choose for the segregation) are to be lumped in??
      Again, the Basques, totally understandable, the rest, no reason whatsoeevr for them to not just be in the “Spanish” branch, both Celts are Iberians are historical inhabitants of Iberia, which both Catalans and Galicians are, denying this is just political propaganda.

        Catalans and Galicians speak languages and have cultures that are usually viewed as distinct from Spanish. No one cares about alledged Celtic heritage as a basis of distinction.

        I still think it’s unnecessarily complicated to include Asturian in the ethnicity, but that seems to be just me.

        • Anto says:

          “speak languages and have cultures that are usually viewed as distinct from Spanish” Again, makes 0 sense no matter how you look at it, what ‘s even “Spanish culture”? Every region is Spain has different cultures/traditions , that’s like saying Bavaria has a different culture than Branderburg, also, virtually every region in Spain has it’s own separate language.
          “Alleged Celtic heritage” btw, not alleged, they literally descend from Celts but that’s off-topic, I just feel like educating ya :)

          • madman says:

            We all draw different boundaries. Local culture does vary, but somewhere we need to draw a line and say where one ethnicity ends and another begins.

            In this case, Galician is closer to Portuguese than to Spanish, and Catalan is not even an Iberian language, it’s Gallic and closer to French than to Spanish. For me, that’s enough to distinguish them both from Spanish. But to start separating Extremadurian, Aragonese etc. would be taking it too far for the purpose of this site. That’s my line.

            Oh, and I highly doubt you’re someone who is in the right place to educate me.

          • Anto says:

            Doubt all you want, I doubt some foreign midget knows more about my own ethnicity than I do, particularly since I have a bachelor’s on Catalan/Spanish philology, I couldn’t feel any more entitled to educate you after all the gibberish you just wrote anyways,
            Listing Galician or Catalan separately from “Spanish” still makes no sense and it there’s no basis whatsoever other than your subjective assesment, so yeah, cope harder and ultimately do as you wish, it will still be wrong, and you will still be a basement dwelling loser.
